5:33 am
call it? so far so good as far as road conditions out there. we've seen the rain actually let up within the past half hour. it's more of a heavy drizzle right now. an accident here on the peninsula in palo alto. this is a good reminder for you out there. remember, we haven't had rain for a very long time. all the oils and fluids that have been dripping from our cars have been building up on the surface of the highways and roads. when you have that first rain, chp reminds you it's going to be extra slippery out there. it's a good reminder to people out there you are going to be safe and for them to be the same. be alert if your car starts to hydroplane. you want to break a little more slowly than you normally would. give yourself extra distance
5:34 am
from the cars ahead of you. and you might want to leave a little bit early this morning when you head into work, give yourself extra time. the best advice, slow down out there. it isn't you but everyone else doesn't know how to drive when the rain comes. >> christina? >> i admit it, i had to use my windshield wipers this morning. as we head throughout the day today, we're not going to be moving with this rainfall all day long, it's a quick moving front, however, it's dumping some generous amounts of rain. let's talk about the king fire. in addition to the rain, we're
5:35 am
expecting gusty winds. but i do this the rain is going to be a help for firefighters out there. it could get dangerous out there. temperatures are going to be mild today. san francisco even up to 69 degrees with that rain-cooled start. the sun is going to come out later on today and we'll see a nice finish, though dangerous conditions out there this morning. mike is already tracking a couple of areas where we have reports of flooding. good morning to you. >> good morning, christina. visibility will be an issue this morning as it kicks up from the car in front of you. not an unusual pattern here. looking pretty good as far as the backup goes. look at your map. we're talking about both sides of the bay. roadway flooding usually means the drainage is blocked and a couple of lanes have big puddles
5:36 am
there. four inches reported over in oakland. we had early reports of a flooding there. there's a big rig tank are truck there in the but i hear that's not a major problem. what we need is the need for a big rig tanker to clear the area. now, a little farther south, visibility to the peninsula and rain moving to the south bay. back to you. >> it is 5:36 right now. to mountain view now. an evacuation order remains in effect at two apartment buildings due to a gas leak.
5:37 am
and authorities made a grisly scene, two dead bodies. steph chuang has the story. >> reporter: if you look at the video from last night, there was a report of a strong gas order reported. it was described at rotten eggs. police went door-to-door when they realized it was a hazard
5:38 am
response and according there was a suicide note on the door. >> i got home from work, took a nap, it really smelled like gas and then the police came and started yelling with a blow horn, knocking on people's doors and told us we had to leave. then i went to dance class and when i came back, it was still this huge scene here. i've just been waiting in my car. my cat is in my apartment. i really want to go see her. >> reporter: and he should be able to see her soon. now haz-mat crews were completely covered from outside air, connected to an oxygen bottle and covered over everything. haz-mat crews went into the apartment to try and get samples, try and determine the
5:39 am
source of this chemical smell that was reported so heavily by police and by residents. again, they are wrapping up here, collecting things and we expect that the residents should be allowed back in here maybe within the next hour. that's the hopeful goal this morning. live in the bay, stephanie chuang. >> a judge has been reassigned of being accused of being a little too cozy with pg&e. the judge was removed after e-mail surfaced indicating pg&e wanted this particular judge to handle its case. while the e-mails were improper, the judge didn't find any particular issue of bias but took him off the case. >> surfers who just scored a legal win over a well-known local billionaire now holding a
5:40 am
victory party this morning at martin's beach. yesterday a judge ruled that the owner of the private beach must unlock the gate that leads to his public beach. he bought this property in 1989 for $32 million. mr. kosla is a billionaire venture capitalist. he said he feels extorted by the surf riders foundation. he cite as legal ruling saying this could set a dangerous precedence for those along the california coastline. >> and expecting some rain. we have rain in the north bray,

5:44 am
preview. >> reporter: good morning. we're learning france has joined the fight, sending in their own jets for air strikes against oil refineries. 12 of them yesterday seemed to be successful. so much so that it seems isis may be moving people out of that area, fearing more to come. here president obama spent much of yesterday focusing on trying to get more nations behind the u.s. effort. the security council that he chaired passed a resolution that will restrict travel for foreign fighters so they can't use their western passports to bring the fight back home. and here the pentagon is trying to figure out if they killed the leader of khorasan, the other terrorist group they went after. >> thousands of firefighters working the king fire are hoping to get a helping hand from this morning's round of rain. they've managed to hold the
5:45 am
containment line keeping the burn area to just under 93,000 acres. they've dealt with red flag warnings, wind gusts, low humidity but they hope to make progress in this weather. yesterday an inmate had to be airlifted out of the fire zone after he was hit by a falling tree limb. 12 homes have been destroyed but there could be more damage in areas that firefighters haven't been able to get to yet. >> someone in the bay area may have a winning lottery ticket of $225 million. >> jackpot. >> that powerball ticket was purchased at key market in san mateo. the owners will be receiving $1
5:46 am
million for selling the winning ticket. >> that hasn't sunk in. we're just excited for the person who is going to get the big purse. >> still in shell shock and too cute for words. last december a man won $324 million in san jose and this is just chump change prepared to those guys. >> kind of amazing. >> it's an odd paradox, a very wealthy area where people keep winning the powerball. >> 5:46. let's take you outside and show you what we are working with. that is some heavy rainfall right on cue. first week of fall and, yeah,

northbound you do jam up from mission boulevard where we have a jackknifed rig. wet roads might have contributed to that condition as well. right now we just see the after effects of rain and water kicking up by 101 near the home depot, you know those signs. 280, 85 and area south of here we'll see rain. and 101, rain here as well. but no incidents through the silicon valley. >> after andy sandberg dropped off the "tonight show," a new hamburger named after him. >> they call it the sam burger. it was inspired by the chicago
